We all could use change in our lives. Change is difficult, even when it’s for the best. Habits are easy, but unfortunately most of us don’t have enough good habits. And, when our busy lives get too busy, we take on even more bad habits, because there are other things that need to get done. We don’t have enough time for ourselves, for our families, and for our significant others.
We tell ourselves “I’ll start exercising as soon as this big project is over.” Then the next big project hits. We say “I just don’t have time to eat healthy. My body can take it. It’s no big deal.” We kid ourselves about the amount of sleep we actually need to stay ultra productive. We skip the planning processes so there’s more time to work. We just keep pushing, until something dramatic happens to us or someone we care about.
But why wait? Why not change now? Why not take care of ourselves and our families first, and then give our attention over to the grind?
I’m going to start now. I invite you to join me.
The Be The Change for YOU Challenge. #BTC4You
STEP 1: Make a bucket list of the things that you commit to doing in 30 days for YOU. Things you know that you need to do for yourself, your health, your well being and overall happiness. (You can do anything for 30 days and it takes that long to form a habit)
STEP 2: Post the bucket list on a blog titled: The Be The Change For YOU 30 Day Challenge #BTC4You (Posting it publicly holds you accountable and can inspire others to join the challenge)
STEP 4: Everyday, follow the hashtag #BTC4You twitter stream. Share what you are doing that day to “Be The Change for YOU” and then encourage others that are taking the challenge. On Facebook You can tag and engage on the Be The Change Revolutions Facebook Page. (The support of a community makes us a zillion times stronger)
